3 out of 5 eggsBe Aware of Many Problems

Pros: 11x17 copy/print
Duplex
Good wireless N networking
Cheaper ink compared to HP and Epson
ADF
Fast

Cons: Many software features don't work.
ADF results in crooked copies.
Must be left on 24x7
Cannot automatically select scannable area
No duplex copying or scanning
Fax over VOIP

Other Thoughts: Feature-wise, this AIO printer had everything I was looking for and was a bargain among printers that had 11x17 copy/print capability. I also needed the ability to occasionally scan from books for my students and the software mentioned a book copy mode that removes shadows from book spines, page edges, etc.

The reality is somewhat different and I wanted to highlight some of these items for people that are considering buying the printer.

1. Software lists and impressive set of copy enhancement features that work only when you make a printed copy. They do NOT work if someone wants to copy and save the image to a file.

2. The ADF is fine for multiple sheets but final images are crooked as if the paper feed isn't firm enough.

3. If printer is tuned off, the clock changes to 12:00 and has to be manually reset after the printer is turned back. There is no non-volatile memory for the clock. Also, if the printer is tuned off for several days, the print heads appear to get misaligned and require print head cleanings. If the printer is left on 24x7, it appears to do the necessary adjustments automatically.

4. The scannable area has to be set in advance if using one of the buttons on the machine. Thus, if the scannable area has been set to 11x17 and an 8.5x11 page is being scanned, the final scan will appear as an 11x17 page half of which is blank. However, one can choose the scanning area manually if using a software from a computer.

5. No duplex copying or scanning. If you have a bunch of 2-sided pages, you will need to copy one side first, flip the copies, flip the pages into ADF again, load the printed pages back into paper tray and then copy side 2. To scan to file, you will have to manually interleave the pages from the "front" and "back" files.

6. Manual mentioned a VOIP setting for faxes. I use Google voice with an Obhai adapter. Granted Faxing over VOIP is iffy, so I was very excited that they have a VOIP feature. Turns out that all that the feature does is drop the fax speed down to 9600b, but does not change EC mode or anything else. Needless to say, I am lucky to be able to send out only 1 page of a fax before getting errors. I had much better luck faxing over the same VOIP setup with a previous Epson AIO printer.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy

Pros: Prints 11 x 17 if you figure out

Cons: So I'm trying to print 11 x 17 from a 2D sketch. I managed once, not sure what was different. I can print 8 x 11 without any adjustments in the printing options. But 11 x 17 refuses to do so. Trying all 11 x 17 format choices, the printer puts out a 8 x 11 blank paper from the 8 x 11 tray and displays a paper format error. Only when a problem arrives you realise how hard to figure out what happens is with this printer. It's software and user interface is worthless. Cheap? Yes. Easy to make it work? No.

5 out of 5 eggsWow!!

Pros: Just... everything. Printing, scanning, faxing, all done extremely well. Compares favourably to much more expensive units from HP, etc.

11x17 size support is nice to have. If you scan frequently, this is your unit. Same with sheet-fed scanning and duplex printing.

Cons: Well, it's a larger unit. Make sure you clear some table space (don't worry, it's worth it.)

Other Thoughts: This is not the first and won't be the last Brother printer I buy. This is a well-built piece of hardware that does exactly what it says it will!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Prints 11x17 which I need in my work.

Cons: Takes a long time for it to print color pdf files that are complicated. Way slower than my color laser.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth Every Penny

Pros: A3 high resolution scanner, pretty speedy scanning a full color (24bit) 11x17 @ 600 x 600dpi over wireless connection (avg about 23 seconds via twain in photoshop.) I've never experienced connectivity issues over wireless when printing from Desktop, 2 separate laptops, or my smartphone. Duplex printing is a great paper saver. I replaced my Mustek A3 USB scanner with this unit on a hunch, I'm glad i did. As a tool for an artist it is indispensable for the money. After initial black ink cartridge empties spend the money on the high yield cartridge for everyday use, it's worth every penny and will save you trips to the store.

Cons: Single sheet feeder is a little tricky, sometimes it will misfeed thicker papers. To solve this apply a little pressure on the paper when inserting into single sheet feeder, the feeder will recognize the paper and pull it in a little bit. Once it's "loaded" properly in place you're all set. The scanner UI is very basic with a simple brightness and contrast control which is a little touchy based on the medium you are trying to scan. It takes some playing around with at first but is really easy to use well once you get the hang of it.

Other Thoughts: Brother has proved to me that they can make an excellent product, I've pushed this unit onto many other artists and illustrators... everyone of them has thanked me for letting them know about product.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat value for large format MFC

Pros: I purchased the similar 6710 model for local store to use in their business. It has worked perfectly. No complaints at all. Text is much sharper than most ink printers that I have seen.

Cons: I really cannot think of any. The ethernet cable connects inside the case under the lid so you must alow another 2 ft of cable length when connecting it via cable.

Other Thoughts: This model is very similar to the 6710. There really is no other large format MFC in this price range that I am aware of.

3 out of 5 eggsGood and Bad

Pros: Prints 11x17 which I need in my work.
Print quality is good. Ink usage is reasonable and print cartridge replacements are loa priced.

Cons: Constantly needs print head cleaning.
Start a new print job, the first copies print OK, then suddenly line start to appear and fade out. You must stop the printing and run the cleaning for the heads at least once, sometimes twice before restarting.

2 out of 5 eggsWireless issues

Pros: Prints good quality and rather quick. Easy to configure and setup.

Cons: The wireless adapter on this printer is awful. A Power Save mode kicks in when the printer is not being used, afterwhich the wireless computers in my house lose connection to the printer. The printer responds to pings, but the Brother software continually shows the printer as offline and refuses to print. Setting the wireless connection back to factory default and reconfiguring the wireless allows it to work again until the next power save cycle.

Other Thoughts: I wouldn't recommend this printer if you're looking to be able to use the wireless functionality.
